How often should I replace my bamboo toothbrush?

We recommend you change your toothbrush every 2-3 months to keep things hygienic and get an optimal clean from your brush. Avoid leaving your brush in the shower where it is constantly damp to avoid growth of harmless but unsightly mould. 

How can I dispose of my bamboo toothbrush once I'm finished with it?

  • To compost your toothbrush when you’re done with it, simply pull the nylon bristles out with pliers or snap the head off beforehand.

  • You can also dispose of the entire brush in your household rubbish, knowing that 90% of it will break down quickly in landfill.

  • Alternatively, you can upcycle it for household use or as a plant label stake in the garden!

I prefer a hard-bristled toothbrush, will you stock those as well?

Dental professionals recommend using soft bristled toothbrushes only, to protect the health of your gums and tooth structure.

 

Toothbrush abrasion is a very common and sometimes painful condition caused from a medium or hard bristled brush.

How much do your produce bags weigh? I'm concerned that I'm paying for the weight at the checkout

Our produce bags weigh in at 12g for the medium size, and 16g for the large size. If you are concerned or are buying expensive produce simply ask your cashier to remove the produce at the checkout to weigh. 

How do I wash my produce bags?

Produce bags can be washed along with your normal washing. They can also be used as a delicates bag!

How often should I use the brush to clean my stainless steel straws?

We recommend running the brush through your straws any time you use them for a beverage other than water. It also helps if you run them under water straight after use. They can also be washed in the dishwasher.

Yes, we sell the cleaning brushes separately. Please check our store.
